Summary

In this book Charles Hartshorne continues his contribution to the field with autobiographical reflections, showing the causal conditions which made his career possible.

"There is some advantage in associating philosophical beliefs with specific life situations. The reader will find suggestions for a philosophy of life and of religion. The religion is not the orthodox Protestant Christianity which I grew up in, although it is closely related, but also includes Judaism, Buddhism, and some forms of Hinduism. It will in some ways be found close to the beliefs of C.S. Peirce and also those of A.N. Whitehead. Of the persons, famous or not famous, that I have known, I recall many things that seem worth making available to others, sometimes witty remarks, expressions of outstanding goodness, remarkable wisdom, or ludicrous foolishness. In such ways the book is a celebration of life in its variety, depths, and heights." -- Charles Hartshorne

Charles Hartshorne is Ashbel Smith Professor Emeritus at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of Creativity in American Philosophy, Insights and Oversights of Great Thinkers, Omnipotence and Other Theological Mistakes, and Wisdom as Moderation all published by SUNY Press.
